ODH can never win a trick. With no drag or resistance, a freefall of 25m gives a terminal velocity of 80.5 Km/hr. To only suffer a broken ankle, implies the velocity was much less than this, probably because of tension in the rope. The only "bullshit" is ODH's claim of the fall being "freefall". There is no mention of freefall in the article.
